We have now completed our lovely holiday in the U.K., and specifically at your home.  Thank you so much for making our stay so comfortable, and especially, allowing me to come in early in the morning to sleep for the day, following my very long flight from Australia!   Shortening the jetlag this way sure made a great difference to the rest of our time in London. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you, and send you our best wishes for a successful B&B season.  Celia from Australia, June 2016.

Our trip to London was wonderful and a large part of it was the warm welcome we received from Mia.  Our room was perfect.  The beds were comfortable, the shower and tub were awesome and the breakfast was wonderful.  I can not say enough kind things about Mia.  She was the sweetest and most helpful host. She went above and beyond to make our stay perfect.  The home is close to everything and an easy walk from the tube.  I would highly recommend this home to anyone.  Cathye, USA, 

We have been last week in B&B (ref 172) and I would like to thank you for the very pleasant experience. The room and the bathroom are spacious, clean and comfortable and the breakfast is very good. But what makes the difference is the warm hospitality. My son (4 years old) falls in love with the hostess!  What can I say we feel at home and highly recommend this accommodation.  Elisabetta, Italy, 

Our hosts were both lovely and made us feel very welcome in their home. I would most definitely recommend them and your agency to any of my friends and colleagues here in Munich who might be thinking of travelling to London for a break.   Our daughter was extremely impressed with London in particular having the park complete with play area and roundabout within walking distance of the accommodation.  Michael, Germany, June 2013

I wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay. Your home, hospitality, breakfast and location were the best we could have asked for. It was a lovely vacation for us, all because we were able to stay in your home. We couldn’t have imagined celebrating our anniversary any differently.

We’re back home In North Dakota now, recovering from jet lag. We keep raving about our stay in your home to our friends and family. So, thank you again for hosting us.
  Aletha, USA, July 2013

We enjoyed these hosts’ hospitality.  It’s like living in your own quiet flat on the top floor.  The situation of this home is super and important parts of London are easily accessible.  Our stay has been easy to manage, we were happy, so we can only recommend the friendliness of the hosts & their comfortable accommodation with B & B.  A & D, Germany  

We especially were very happy with our B&B. The welcome was very good, the (English) breakfast was delicious. Our hosts were very pleasant and the home was nice and very well located. Lydie, France

We spent 6 days in Mrs and Mr W’s  B and B, and we has been very pleased: kindness, contact, breakfast and bedroom and bathroom were as expected.  We will return in this B and B!  Cecile, France
